Find out how Operation Heal Our Patriots is serving wounded veterans and their spouses during and after a weeklong retreat at Samaritan Lodge Alaska. Samaritan's Purse brings wounded and injured veterans and their spouses to our wilderness lodge in Alaska in Port for a week of rest, relaxation, and spiritual healing through Operation Heal Our Patriots.
